What you need to know about this season's Cedar Fever/Allergies
It's that time of the year again when many Central Texans begin to suffer from the symptoms of Cedar Fever. Cedar Fever is an allergic reaction to the pollen from an evergreen shrub commonly known as the Mountain Cedar. Cedar Fever is most common in December and January, when pollen counts are at their peak, but cases can last through March.
Symptoms of Cedar Fever range from a runny nose, and itchy eyes to headaches and sinus congestion. A physician can help you determine if you are suffering from Cedar Fever or the cold or flu, and can consult with you on appropriate treatment.
There are ways to alleviate the symptoms of cedar fever. In addition to over the counter antihistamines or decongestants, a physician can provide steroids for patients with severe symptoms or allergic reactions.
